Katie Rox is the Banjo player and vocalist with all female Country Music group Nice Horse. Katie joins Country Music Made Me to discuss how her country inspired upbringing in the rural community of Airdrie Alberta helped lead her towards a career in Country Music, how playing guitar and singing took a backseat to her love of performing at a young age, and how poems about her beloved pony Jenny were early signs of songwriting. Katie and Brendan talk about the importance of College and hearing someone else other than her parents tell her she was good at music, what it was like getting a job at the world famous Warehouse Studios in Vancouver only a few months after moving there, and what it was like when Dave Ogilvie approached her and asked if she'd like to front the Indie pop/rock group Jakalope. Finally, Katie explains how a trip to Hawaii with a group of like minded female artists led to the formation of Nice Horse, how being surrounded by three other Type A musicians helped drive the group to places they had never expected, and what it's like to receive CCMA nominations and play big summer festivals after navigating their way through the pandemic.
